The company has also published the specs of the car, so we can tell you it all starts with an aluminum space frame chassis that uses chromoly steel subframes for extra stiffens, with this being covered in a carbon fiber body. The result is an overall weight of just 2,403 lbs (1090 kg), with a perfect distribution of 50:50.

You can choose between two engines: the entry level one is a naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 with 445 hp, while the second one is a supercharged incarnation of the unit, which produces 605 hp/ Further down the power line, we find a six-speed manual, al aluminum driveshaft and a limited slip differential.

The connection to the road is established via an all-round independent suspension, with adjustable dampers and sway bars, while stopping power comes for Brembo, with six-piston calipers and 15-inch rotors up front ant four-piston grabbers with 13.5-inch rotors at the rear.
